ABSTRACTAirway management in pregnant is still a challenge for anesthesiologist, especially with preeclamptic and obese patients. Although tracheal intubation is the gold standard, when exist difficulties, oxygenation/ventilation of the mother is the priority. Consideration of early use of supraglotic devices and videolaryngoscopy is very helpful. The airway management and obstetric approach, finally, will depend on fetus/mother wellness. Nowadays, the airway evaluation during labor or before C-section, getting adequate equipment and airway devices in labor room providing permanent training to the team in charge of the pregnant are the kit for success and reduce complications.
